Crazy times yet again in the world of Steg, so things with the league have to remain on hold until July, and we are definitely looking at a late draft this year.  Stegs will not come up for air until July 3rd, but even then not really.  That said, amidst it all I would not mind hooking up with some of you east coasters.  Here are our upcoming dates...
 
We are in the throws of moving to a new place (YET AGAIN).  With some overlap in leases,.. we are currently in the process of packing; movers coming on June 3rd; will be out of this place and on a plane heading to New Jersey on June 7th, arriving on June 8th.  Reason for this current move: we are moving Mama Steg out with us.  That said, on June 20th, will hop in the car and head to Illinois to, per the quote above, get that dissertation defended on June 22nd.  Then, back to mom, and, after getting some movers and chuckers involved, we ALL head back to Hawaii on July 2nd.  Steg, of course, then has to be back in the classroom on July 5th to teach Deductive Logic for the first time, which means that I should devote a good amount of time to reacquainting myself to formal logic and preparing the class... on the planes, I guess.
 
So, here we go...  Gonna be crazy, not much time to ditz around, but if you want to get together, let me know a.s.a.p., and let's see what we can do.  If you want to drop by the old Steg residence one last time, this is the last opportunity, preferably before June 20th, that is, before things are in total upheaval, and visitors are not really going to be welcome.
 
Over and Out...

 
Alas, fellas, old Stegger is starting to emerge from the fog of war that was this summer...  In all frankness, I have endured some shit in my lifetime, but the events of this summer have brought me to my knees (and my wife as well -- Danny is now working one out ).  In all seriousness, the events that have transpired this summer have kicked my ass, and then this logic class I came back to teach has handed said kicked ass to me.  Mental and physical exhaustion and strained emotions abound.  This is why I have been M.I.A.
 
So, with that said, I had to back-burner the GBRFL.  As such, we are at a later point than we have ever been with respect to the commencement of a season, and now we have not a minute to spare to get the ball rolling...
 
We are obviously looking at an on-line/conference-call draft this year.  That said, with only about half of the league responding at this point, it nevertheless appears from discussions on "The... Just Talk Thread" that two of the only THREE weekends (not including this weekend) we have left to conduct the draft during have already been ruled out, that is, the weekends of August 20th-21st and 27th-28th.
 
That leaves us with Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd and 4th, and Labor Day itself, Monday, September 5th.  Given the urgent nature of this year's circumstances, I would also like to throw out a few more (outside-the-box) possibilities.  Fridays work for me...  How about a Friday evening draft on either August 19th or 26th?  In fact, I could make ANY day after Tuesday next week work, and after that I could also make Mondays or Wednesdays work.  Heck, how about a shotgun draft this Sunday, August 14th?  I would be game.
 
Thoughts!  Let's get to it...
 
Oh, and back!

I can probably make any time work.  I prefer the 14th or Labor Day weekend to the 26th because I will have questionable internet service then.

I don't have Labor Day off, but that weekend Sunday would work. Friday the 26th would work if it's late enough in the day.
 
This Sunday is no good for me.
 
Welcome back, Steg! Call me sometime.

So the Saturday and Sunday of Labor are absolutely horrible for me unfortunately. My wife reminded me my Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day are horrible.  If that is the only day, I can do it if someone calls and gives me updates as I will be standing at soccer fields all weekend with two travel soccer tournaments.
 
I am available Labor Day itself.
 
I can also do evenings, if it doesn't go super late. (except evening of August 23-25th.
 
I am available any and all other weekends as well.
 
I am NOT available this week at all.

I like the idea of an evening, maybe it won't be a 9 hour draft.

Assuming a midweek evening, which I suggested in my message above (and have not ruled out), is really just a desperation option, it looks like, based on the discussion here, a Friday evening draft is becoming a likelihood, either THIS UPCOMING Friday, August 19th or the Friday heading into Labor Day weekend, September 2nd.  What do yous think?

Morning, gents. Huge congrats Dr. Stegifus. Amazing accomplishment and work to get where you are. Continue your work teaching these minds to be critical thinkers.
 
I am traveling Labor Day weekend, leaving Fri afternoon and then with family all Labor Day weekend. I am open to an online draft or making this Fri work.

Sorry for chiming in late - welcome back Steg! Sure there's work ahead still.
 
Labor Day weekend is my best option- that said, I can make a pm draft work if necessary any Mon/Tues last 3 weeks of Aug.
Actually, wide open after Sun the 28th, next 2 weekends in Aug however are not good.

Well, fellas, while I agree with Danny with respect to the Friday evening possibilities, it seems like one day is starting to come into focus in the face of our respective scheduling needs: THIS Friday, August 19th!
 
Whatchyas think???  PLEASE chime in promptly!!!  If that is to be the date, then we got to get a move on and get it finalized!

Sorry,,not gonna work for me and cant make it work. On vacation with the family and have plans. I didn't even mention this week because I never thought it was a possibility to have the draft so fast. Sorry
 
PS...if Labor is the only weekend, I can draft if someone calls me with constant updates.  It is going to really suck

Well, then, guys,... working backwards from Kickoff Thursday, it seems like our next best options are Wednesday, September 7th, the day before Kickoff Thursday, or Wednesday, August 31st.  With a start time around 8:30 p.m. (EST), I could make it work.

Okay, given Warner's edit, it looks like the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, September 4th, is back on the table.  So, what do we want: one of the Wednesday evenings mentioned above or Labor Day Sunday???

Sunday of Labor Day is much better for me than any Wednesday. Most Wednesdays I can't be available before 9:30 EST.

Heyas, fellas...  So, I am going to go ahead and declare Labor Day Sunday, that is, Sunday, September 4th as our date for the 2016 GBRFL Draft.  Barring any serious objections, I think that is it.  Now, as for the start time, look, I would really like not to commence before 11:00 a.m. my time in Hawaii, which is 5:00 (EST).  I am good with any time after that.  So, what time do yous want to start up???
